    I have posted this at least twice before over the years but here it is again. It is putting on a nice show this year.

    I have tried to self this plant and also tried an out cross. All attempts have failed. I will try another selfing this year. This species really needs to be more available.

    Kelly, I have also failed with selfings and outcrosses. We should both keep trying. Nicely grown plant!
